As the days pass, the thermometer keeps creeping upwards--slowly but surely. Friends are getting their summer plans firmed up. We'll go out on our boat and explore some of the Gulf Islands that we don't know very well yet. Our target this year is Pender Island. We'll bring our bikes along so that we can tour the whole island, and we'll also have our crab and prawn traps along. Oh my...if you've never had big spot prawns fresh from the trap, tossed with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper and thrown straight on the grill...well, I highly recommend it! Serve with a nice cold glass of Rosé. Bliss.
It is a bit strange that after all our years of boating we haven't really spent much time on Pender Island--so if you have any suggestions or favourite spots there, please let me know. I'd love to hear from you!
